    Doubront throws two scoreless, but Red Sox fall to Rays news services

    PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Boston starter Felix Doubront struck out three in two shutout innings, but the Tampa Bay Rays still nabbed 6-4 victory over a Boston Red Sox split squad Saturday.

    Justin Ruggiano homered after Fernando Perez led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a triple to give the Rays the win.

    Andy Sonnanstine and Wade Davis each walked three as the Red Sox took a 3-1 lead in the first four innings.

    Ben Zobrist and Kelly Shoppach hit their first home runs of the spring off Adam Mills in the fourth inning to put the Rays ahead, 4-3.

    Shoppach's homer came after a single by B.J. Upton.

    The Red Sox brought their starting infield on a day when most of the team stayed in Fort Myers to play the Minnesota Twins.
